Easter Goodies from Baylis & Harding

Baylis & Harding Easter Gifts reviewIt’s fair to say that we’re big Baylis & Harding fans in this house; going for a tour of their impressive offices last year was a great day out and their products are always adorning our bathrooms around the house.  So this weekend when I popped up the supermarket I was excited to see their new range of bath and toiletry goodies for Easter which are totally in keeping with the fun and fresh products that Baylis & Harding are becoming known for.

The best thing is that this new Easter range is full of some of my favourite flavours such as gingerbread and chocolate but they won’t leave a lasting impression on my hips! So they are the perfect Easter gift as an alternative to chocolate.

To ease the sugar-load this Easter, here are some alternative gifts to go with the mounds of chocolate about to descend upon your home.

Be prepared to be scrubbing out smeared in chocolate the next day though!
